Results from Saturday, Aug 6, 2022 Sprint at Summer Nationals in VT

The ‘open class’ is both Seniors and Juniors combined together. Then the Juniors are also on a separate class result. I think both age classes carried rifles on the entire course while the Youth and younger did a shorter course plus some ‘rifle loops’.  

There are a number of Canadian biathletes competing also—and they often come down with really fast roller skis..almost rollerblade fast.

Mass Start and Pursuits tomorrow!! The link to the start times is posted on the main sheet of the same webpage.

For those leasing rifles this year, I will be sending out lease forms today to those who will be on the same rifle as last year. For those who are getting onto a different rifle, I am holding off yet while we sort that out. For those who will be leasing for the first time, we need to see you at a daycamp and go through all our procedures and fit a rifle to you at that time.

Hope that helps!!

Coaching Resource for Master Biathletes

Biathlon Coaching by Paul and Bryn is a full-service biathlon coaching service that focuses on both the shooting and fitness components of biathlon.  This training program is NOT a replacement for your local club live fire training, but a supplementary virtual program.  It is the responsibility of the participant to have their own rifle and basic equipment.

This coaching program is designed for three types of individuals:

  1. You want to learn biathlon basics, shooting technique and biathlon specific physical training
  2. You have biathlon experience, previous race experience, and want to become more competitive
  3. You have several years of high-level biathlon experience, competitive within your age group and want to compete at a very high level Nationally or Internationally

The services provided by Biathlon Coaching by Paul and Bryn include:

  • Introductory sessions including rifle basics, rifle fitting, range protocol and position
  • Shooting video analysis either live video or recorded
  • Weekly sessions at Dry Fire Foundry (drop-in classes) based on training package
  • Monthly 60 shot shooting tests
  • Weekly shooting workouts (dry or live fire combination)
  • Ski related workouts each week (Run, bike, rollerski, skierg, ski hiking, run/shoot combos)
  • Daily workout analysis through Training Peaks for each workout
  • Up to 15 minutes each week with either shooting coach or fitness coach

Whether you are looking to improve your shooting technique, preparing for the 2022 US National Biathlon Championships in Lake Placid or dreaming of competing in the 2024 World Master Games in Italy, we have a program that can help you achieve your goals.
